After shelling of residential areas in the city of Afrin in the north of the Syrian province of Aleppo by the Turkish Armed Forces, ten civilians were injured, a Kurdish Syrian politician Rezan Hedu told a local television channel on Wednesday.
Kurdish YPG announced the conclusion of an agreement with the Russian Federation on the presence of Russian military observers in the city of Afrin. A representative of the Syrian Kurds said that today’s shelling of the city was not conducted for the first time. Residential quarters are bombarded with artillery throughout the year.
However, today the artillery strike was intense and protracted, which, according to Hedu, is unacceptable given the presence in the city of tens of thousands of refugees in addition to indigenous people. “They (Turks – Ed.) want to spoil the established relations and agreements between the Russians and the Kurds by their current shelling. While the Russians want to be a guarantor of stability, including in the north of Aleppo, involving their military police,” he added.
